This classic beef stroganoff recipe has tender steak and meaty mushrooms in a rich and tangy cream sauce flavored with sour cream and Dijon.


Units Scale
  • 16 oz. uncooked egg noodles
  • 1 lb. top sirloin/ boneless rib eye/ beef tenderloin, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 16 oz. fresh baby bella/white mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Garnish with parsley, chives or green onions (optional)


  1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and cook your egg noodles according to package directions. Drain the noodles then butter if desired.
  2. Pre-season the beef with salt and pepper and mix well. In a skillet over medium-high heat, add olive oil and sear the beef strips until browned, about 1 minute per side. Add more oil if needed and do this in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan. Let them sear without stirring for the best browning results. Remove beef and set aside.
  3. Add butter, toss in onions and mushrooms and saute until onions are soft and the mushroom liquid has cooked down, about 5 minutes.
  4. Toss in garlic and saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  5. Add flour, cook and stir for about 1 minute.
  6. Pour in beef broth and scrape up any browned bits from the pan.
  7. Add heavy cream and simmer until the sauce has thickened slightly.
  8. Turn the heat down to low, add sour cream, Worcestershire sauce, mustard and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Simmer gently until the sauce has reduced a little and is thick and creamy, about 5 minutes.
  10. Add seared beef and plate juices back to the pan and simmer for about 1 minute, or until beef is heated through.
  11. Dish and serve hot over buttered egg noodles, mashed potatoes, or rice.


  • Add some herbs – Season the mushrooms with some fresh or dried thyme.
